Too early to tell, but this might also be the new DIT motor for the MY2020 STI that will inevitably replace the EJ. A 2.4 can easily push over 330hp with the right internals.
Exactly. People shouldn't get too worried about the engine until the specs are out and it's been driven. The 2.4 DIT could be tuned for 280-300hp using a smaller turbo for better response and low end torque and do a great job in the Ascent.
